It’s almost a year now since the ‘Accra In Paris’ concert spearheaded by Anne Sophie Avè was organised in Paris, France.
The event was put together by the French Embassy in Ghana and former French Ambassador to Ghana H.E Anne Sophie Avè . This was in partnership with astute media personality Nathan Kwabena Anokye-Adisi (Bola Ray) and his Empire Entertainment team.
Well, the conversation among Ghanaians is whether there would be another edition this year. Especially when the ever loving Anne Sophie is no longer at the helm of affairs at the French Embassy.
Anne Sophie Avè speaking in an interview with Sammy Kay on the Go online show, indicated she does not know if it will happen this year.
According to her, the question as to whether the “Accra in Paris” will happen should be directed to the French Embassy. She said it would not be fair to sit on her successor.
She however added that, the new France ambassador has taken over and doing his way. The France Ambassador for Public Diplomacy in Africa said she just gave a push but the project can be carried out.
That notwithstanding, “Akosua” explained that the Accra in Paris concert can be taken over by and event organiser. She however admitted the tediousness in putting up such a concert. And added that, her role was a bit outside her normal duties.
